They Can't Take That Away from Me

Ebert posted this video on Twitter. An Idiot with an Iphone made it with his iphone, proving “what one man can do another can do.” But what I love about it is that is pays homage to two of 2010′s best films, The Social Network and Inception. This is the second viral video to use this cut from the Reznor/Ross Network soundtrack – and it marks one of the best…

[notice]This editorial was written by a British 15 year-old named Michael Dalton living in Switzerland. [/notice] When The Social Network won every critic award in sight many, including me believed that this love would continue right up to the Oscars. The Social Network was the ‚ÄúZeitgeist‚Äù film, it supposedly captured us today, it was the film that the Oscars would want to reward in order to maintain their image as…

The Guardian Calls it for the Social Network

It isn’t that the Eddie’s win last night makes it suddenly apparent that The Social Network will win – there is precedent for both films taking Best Picture. Films have won the three major guilds, lost the Eddie but still won Best Picture (American Beauty is one, No Country for Old Men is another), and there are films that won all three guilds, lost the Eddie, and then lost Best…

A Prophet Tops ICS Awards, Social Network Wins Three

Jacques Audiard’s darkly gorgeous prison drama A Prophet has broken loose from the pack, winning the International Cinephile Society’s award for best picture of 2010. The French, Corsican and Arabic feature also received kudos for best film not in the English language, along with Audiard’s tense yet strangely mystical direction, and supporting actor Niels Arestrup’s layered portrait of an old-school gang boss slowly losing his grip. Continuing this year’s theme…

Google Trending Predicts The Social Network for the Win

Google Trending Predicts The Social Network for the Win

I’ve been at this so long I remember when the Wall Street Journal used to do a poll to predict who would win — I think they turned out to be kind of right but not 100%. ¬†The reason the race is so hard to predict is because it’s won not on quality usually but on perception. ¬†And perception can change on a dime. ¬†We all remember high school, right?…

Slight Clarification on the Irrelevance of Critics

Read More

In his latest always entertaining Oscar column, Movieline’s Stu Van Airsdale takes me to task on my suggestion that this year’s Oscar race will render the critics irrelevant in a way we’ve not yet seen. ¬†Like, not ever. ¬†Usually even films like Crash, Shakespeare in Love and Braveheart, which scooted through to a Best Picture win at the last minute, had SOME critics awards behind them. ¬†Yes, I am talking…

With the Oscar race now almost entirely put to bed, we await two competing stats working against each other to determine the outcome of this year’s race for Oscar: Since 1975 (when the LA Film Critics formed), three films have won the NBR, the Los Angeles and New York Film Critics and the Golden Globe. Two of them will have won Best Picture unless the Social Network makes Oscar history…

Only Causes Worth Fighting For

Yeah, stick a fork in Oscar race 2010. ¬†The Weinsteins win this round. But we have to entertain ourselves in the coming weeks – if, for no other reason, we still have at least three weeks before the Oscars finally roll themselves out, choose their winner. ¬†By then, we’ll all be exhausted of film awards altogether. I remember there was a moment this race when it looked like the thing…
